  • Added FPL flight plan export for FeelThere aircraft. #206
  • New flight plan export for Level-D (.rte). #206
  • Adapted flight plan file type detection to new formats and improved it for drag and drop loading. Files are now accepted for dropping/loading independent of file extension.
  • Now automatically suggesting a numbered filename if file already exists when exporting or using Save as. Same for aircraft performance files.
  • Reorganized export flight plan menu items into categories (Aircraft, Online, etc.) for better overview.
  • Changed default export folder for aircraft flight plan formats to use simulator base folder instead of Documents.

Online Networks

  • Enabled IVAO online network support based on mirror on www.littlenavmap.org. #244
  • Now displaying flight simulator type in information window for online network clients.

Help

Map

  • Fixed issue where MORA data was displayed only with Navigraph data enabled. Now always shown independent of selection. #331
  • Changed taxiway color for better visibility with light backgrounds.
  • Added taxiway colors and pens to little_navmap_mapstyle.ini to allow configuration.
  • Logbook userpoint icon now displayed using an offset from airport icon to avoid covering the airport symbol. Hotspot of logbook userpoint is now top left of the symbol. #366
  • Changed AI/multiplayer aircraft on ground to appear earlier when zooming in.
  • Now disabling text in MORA display if it gets too small to avoid garbled up display.
  • Now hiding the scalebar when saving map images. Scale bar is now only included when printing.
  • Fixed several display issues with procedure legs.

Flight Plan and Performance

  • Fixed issue where selecting a parking position as departure resulted in zero cruising altitude in flight plan (FSX/P3D .pln).
  • Now disabling aircraft performance collection when sim is paused or replaying (replay only detected on X-Plane).
  • Relaxed maximum distance requirements for waypoints in route string parser.\
    Airports are now always used independent of distance to previous waypoint. This allows to build plans like EDDF KORD EDDM.\
    #376
  • Fixed display and conversion issues in aircraft performance when using metric units.
  • Vertical descent speed, descent speed and descent rule of thumb now displayed correctly.
  • Fixed route description parser to ignore runway designations attached to airport like USSS/08R ... ZMUB1200/33.
  • Route description parser can now read long SID and STAR names like ENVA UTUNA1A vs. ENVA UTUN1A.

Scenery Library

  • Airports with open helipads and closed runways are now considered open.
  • Now considering helipads for rating calculation for airports.
  • Fixed issue with error messages when loading OpenAIR files with missing airspace class. Now omitting only the invalid airspaces instead of the whole file.
  • Now looking for registry keys in a case insensitive manner to avoid problems where FSX or P3D could not be found.

User Interface

  • Added function key shortcuts in menu Window -> Shortcuts to have quick access to search, flight plan, map and more. #364
  • Added shortcuts to switch between styles Fusion (Shift+F2) and Night (Shift+F3).
  • Added links to airport folder Documents/Little Navmap Files/ICAO for airport information. Links to all files in the related folder are shown if the path exists for an airport with the given ICAO ident. The path is locale sensitive, e.g. in German Dokumente/Little Navmap Dateien/ICAO. This depends on completeness of the translation. Try both variants (Files vs. your system language) if in doubt. Clicking on a link opens the file in the default editor or viewer of the system.
  • Fixed wrong test in options dialog for online status.txt file. Now looking for the correct values to verify the file or download.
  • Default folder is now the simulator base path when selecting exclusions in the options dialog on tab Scenery Library Database.
  • Fixed issue where date display used 12 hour time without AM/PM indicator. Now always using 24 hour time for UTC time display.
  • Moved all context menus a few pixels off the cursor to avoid accidental selection of first entry on touchpads or some mice.
  • Changed lengthy prefix for custom map themes to * in the drop down box on the toolbar.
  • Limited text length for files and paths in scenery loading dialog to avoid growing the progress dialog too large.
  • Shortcuts (menu Window -> Shortcuts) are now enabled on all windows.

Weather

  • Fixed default NOAA and VATSIM weather URLs to use HTTPS/SSL.
  • Added migration code to convert NOAA weather URL to use SSL/HTTPS if user left URL unchanged.
  • Made METAR parser more tolerant for invalid temperature values not separated by a /.
  • Fixed issues with missing weather updates when switching airport weather.

Configuration

  • Now reading environment variable LNM_RENDERER for potential fixes on crashes or graphic problems.\
    To use desktop OpenGL renderer set it to desktop. \
    Use Angle to DirectX adapter for rendering: angle.\
    To use the software renderer set it to software.
  • Added [Options] / PixmapCache allowing to change pixmap cache size as a potential fix for disappearing icons.
  • Added preliminary options for manual application of user interface font configuration in settings. #373. Example:\
    [Options]\
    GuiFontFamily=FONTNAME\
    GuiFontFile=FILE.ttf (Optional)\
    GuiFontPixelSize=12 (Optional)
  • [Options] / Language override in settings file now fixed for online help and legend loading.

related from Little Xpconnect version 1.0.14

  • Fixed issue with AI detection where aircraft remained on map moving along with the user aircraft after deleting AI in simulator.

  • Aircraft track is now ignored when determining profile window altitude to avoid confusion when stale tracks result in wrong profile maximum.
  • Aircraft direction now turned if reversal relative to active leg detected.
  • Fixed several issues with aircraft movement and trail in elevation profile. Profile trail now depends on active leg and is now saved separately from aircraft trail on map.

Aircraft Performance

#255

See main menu -> Aircraft and tab Aircraft in dock window Flight plan.

Note that the new tab in the Flight plan dock window is meant for fuel planning and does not change during flight (except when collecting performance data).

New

  • Added aircraft performance facilities including edit dialog, new, save, save as, load, file history and report.
    Performance files (lnmperf) can be dragged into the main window of Little Navmap to load.

  • FAF and/or FACF is shown with a Maltese cross on the map and in elevation profile. The Maltese cross is applied to either final approach fix or final approach course fix depending on ILS GS intercept altitude and approach type. #196
  • Changed last Proceed to Runway leg to correct Circle to Land for approaches without runway ends and Straight In for others.
  • Circle-to-land and straight-in legs following a missed approach point are now drawn correctly with a dashed line on the map and in the flight plan profile. #252
  • Added indication for DME distance to or from waypoint in procedure search (e.g. TAU+6) and flight plan table for certain leg types.
    This minimizes the confusing duplicate display of idents in the flight plan table. #265
  • Added procedure name to flight plan table instead of the generic names like SID or STAR.
  • Added display of ARINC name (e.g. Q21 or I16) to flight plan header label since some FMCs need this value.
    #306
  • Added warning dialog for flight plan zero cruise altitude before saving. #263
  • Made loading of procedures more tolerant for renamed runways and for ARINC names of procedures.
  • Removed annoying change in flight plan when Little Navmap adapted start position on loading. Now leaving flight plan change status unchanged.

    See dialog Options on tab Simulator Aircraft: Allow scrolling ... and Jump back ....
  • Centering of active flight plan leg and aircraft (if enabled in options) falls back to simple aircraft centering if distance to flight plan is larger than 50 NM.
    This helps to avoid situations where the program zoomed too far out when flying with stale flight plans.
  • Changed jump-back-to-aircraft logic to avoid weird behavior (zooming far out and other issues).
    When aircraft is on ground or Center map on aircraft and next flight plan waypoint is not selected:
    • Start looking around on the map by moving first (mouse drag or cursor keys) and not by zooming (mouse wheel or plus and minus keys) to suppress aircraft centering for a while.
    • Zooming without movement (drag or cursor keys only) keeps the zoom distance.
  • Added option to avoid blurred online maps. This is enabled per default. See dialog Options on tab Map: Avoid blurred .... This options works best with the map projection Mercator. #254
  • Added option for sun shading on map which can use real time, simulator time or user defined time. See main menu View -> Show Sun Shading and Sun Shading sub-menu.

  • Added dialog to set user defined time and date for sun shading. See main menu View -> Sun Shading -> Set user defined time. #60
  • Drawing of complex X-Plane airports accelerated significantly. #245
  • Added dashed center line to ILS feathers and made feathers semi-transparent.
  • ILS labels now adhere to the text background color setting for navaids. This allows to select a white background for the labels for better visibility.
  • Now omitting curves, arcs, holds, procedure turns and other fancy geometry of procedures on high zoom factors to avoid a mess up of graphics in the spherical projection. Fixed flight plan leg distance label turning into weird directions when using spherical projection and at high zoom factors. #287
  • Aircraft icon heading is now more correct at higher zoom levels when using spherical projection. #239
  • Improved zooming when using a touchpad. Now less sensitive when using two finger touchpad or other gestures.
  • Added workaround for issues when zooming to map objects. Now determining the best zoom distance until all is visible.
  • Fixed issue of map jumping to the wrong place when zooming around the anti-meridian with the mouse wheel.
  • Changed map context menu to correctly show only the mentioned item in Show information menu item and nothing else.
  • Replaced home view symbol on map with actual icon from toolbar button.
  • Moved Remove all Ranges, Measurements and Patterns from all context menus to main menu Map.
  • Several issues with the map context menu and Show Information fixed.
  • Fixed several drawing issues with the aircraft trail, procedures on high zoom levels, flight plan, ILS and others.
  • Replaced OpenMapSurfer hillshading with the one used for OpenStreetMap since server is offline.

Procedures

  • Changes for SID and STAR that use multiple or parallel runway assignments indicated by e.g.
    All or 23L/23R. Added sub menu in procedure search for SID/STAR selection
    if more than one runway can be selected. Procedures are now correctly resolved if loading or
    assigning such cases. This solves problems when saving procedures in X-Plane FMC 11 format or other
    various formats. #179
  • Changed context menu Show Procedures to show different texts when airport is
    destination or departure of current flight plan. Show procedures now sets filter to departure or
    arrival procedures depending on selected airport of flight plan.

  • Now updating magnetic declination for VOR, DME or TACAN with a calculated value where missing.
  • Corrected wrong runway heading for Navigraph compilation. #214
  • Fixes for missing airway segments in DFD compiler. Fixed duplicate removal of
    waypoints. #201
  • Now ignoring artificial circle-to-land approaches in DFD compiler.

X-Plane and Navigraph

  • SID and STAR common routes are now merged correctly into
    procedures. This results in correct SID/STAR and also removes
    the ghost entries. #193
  • Now removing all unneeded dummy NDB and VOR waypoints that were
    created for airway generation. #201
  • Fixed issue where approach name and/or suffix were not read correctly in X-Plane and DFD compiler.

FSX/P3D

  • Now reading FSX/P3D scenery entries pointing to scenery instead
    of the base directory which is allowed in P3D. These were silently omitted previously.
  • Reading .../Roaming/.../add-on.cfg and
    .../ProgramData/.../add-on.cfg now. #211
  • FSX/P3D is now hidden in the scenery library menu if the simulator base folder from the registry does not exist. This should help to avoid menu items for uninstalled simulators.
  • Added script by Gérard to clean out fake runways for AI in FSX/P3D.
  • Added logging for airport altitude to log file when reading delete records from FSX/P3D.
    Example: Add-on airport altitude for VQ10 changed from 7703 ft (BGL Scenery/0902/APX72220.bgl) to 8363 ft
  • Improved BGL file and scenery reading to include hidden and system files.

X-Plane

  • Updated included magnetic declination file to 2018.

    first and can be overloaded in settings database directory by a newer one. Programm checks
    database internal compilation time before copying and creates database indexes on demand.
    Database is copied and prepared on first startup.

Flight Plan Export

  • Enabled saving of the new X-Plane 11 FMS file format and added warning before saving since the
    format is not usable by X-Plane 11.05.
    FMS 11 is now the default format when saving FMS although it needs at least a 11.10 beta version.
    FMS 3 can still be saved using the export option. See in the manual:
    FMS 11
    and
    FMS 3.

    aircraft trail on startup in options dialog on tab Startup.

Other

  • Updated Linux startup script so that it can be used also by the desktop launcher (thanks to Valerio for the tip).
  • Now adding all readme and changelog files to macOS deployment.
  • Added command line option -s or --settings-directory that allows to change the ABarthel part of the
    settings directory for testing purposes like running more than one version of Little Navmap.
  • Fixed display of navaids in information dock window on procedure tab and removed SIDs and STARs
    since this information was not useful.

Fixed Errors

  • Fixed error where ARINC name of procedures was not loaded causing problems when exporting and loading flight plans.
  • Fixed problem in ATS route string parser where an airway as an invalid first entry did not generate a warning message.
  • Fixed error in route string parser which did not recognize STARs correctly.
  • Fixed error where first enroute waypoint contained an airway reference after calculating with SID in some cases.
    This caused problems when exporting some flight plan formats and in the route string parser.
  • Fixed several display issues with large airspaces and airways crossing the anti meridian. These showed up
    mirrored with their tooltips in other parts of the world. Small problems remain (e.g. Melbourne FIR).

  • Better handling of X-Plane OpenAirspace comments.
  • Fixed crashes and freezes with invalid or incomplete procedures.
    Drawing code is now more robust for invalid procedure legs as they appear in some add-on scenery.
  • Fixed problem where invalid procedure legs were not recognized (course/heading to DME distance or VOR radial).
  • Fixed problem where no scenery database was selected on first startup causing crashes when loading a flight plan.
  • Fixed handling of missing or inaccessible legend file. Now silently ignores error and redirects to
    web page if unavailable.
  • Fixed error in scenery library menu where a menu item could be deselected resulting in no selection at all.
